False Arrest, Prosecution, and Imprisonment
The police and prosecutors do not have free reign to arrest, imprison, and pursue charges against anyone for any reason. There are legal standards that must be met before an arrest can be validly made. Once a charge is filed, the prosecutor must meet certain burdens before a charge can lawfully be pursued. If you were arrested on false charges or prosecuted or imprisoned for improper reasons, you may have a remedy under the law.
